Robert Chang's research interests lie in the intersection of mathematical physics, probability, and complex analysis. He is particularly interested in problems arising from quantum mechanics, such as quantum chaos; nodal sets and Lp norms of eigenstates; and spectral asymptotics. His most recent works establish near-diagonal scaling asymptotics for the Szegő kernel on the boundary of a Grauert tube, with applications to the growth rate of Husimi distributions. Trained as an analyst, Chang is particularly passionate about teaching mathematical analysis. He is also a mentor for Bridge to Calculus at Northeastern University. Chang obtained his PhD under the supervision of Steve Zelditch at Northwestern University in 2019. He was a Zelevinsky Research Instructor at Northeastern University prior to joining Reed College.
